A board of directors can serve a much more important function than merely approving a company’s budgets or rubber-stamping a CEO’s agenda. In fact, a board, if well-managed, can serve as an invaluable source of expertise and advice. In an entertaining, informative presentation, Glenn Kelman, the charismatic CEO of real estate brokerage Redfin, shares his personal experiences of building a board. Although he casually name-drops and uses occasional salty language, and his examples are anecdotal and specific to Redfin, his advice is universally applicable. getAbstract recommends this video to start-up founders who strive to assemble strong boards.
